What templates are you using for each file ?
Did you copy another skill as a model or did you start from scratch ?

i created myself , probably i will copy one from ice shard or another skill projectile.

The templates for the skill i tried was "skill_attackprojectilefan" and then "skill_attackprojectile" , both with same results, like 9 in 10 times the skill effect dont show.


For the tornado effect was "Templates\ProjectileTerrainFollowing.tpl" aside from regular "effect template"

It is often best to duplicate and reuse the file chain of an existing skill that behaves like yours, and only change what is necessary, instead of recreating something with the risk that it just doesn't work.

Did you make the .pfx yourself from an existing effect or is it completely new ?

Thank you Soa for the help, i could resolve the problem. The problem was on my effect file.

I shouldnt create a new effect file, i copy the projectile by the arachnos , changed the visual effect and it works now.

Sometimes the fix its just in front of us, instead of creating new problems.
